Edward Behr's magazine The Art of Eating has a new website and blog. And I guess to celebrate, this seriously wonderful food newsletter turned magazine is having a summer sale. Now through Aug. 12, save 30% when you buy four back issues. That's $33 total, with free shipping. Just scroll through the back issues table of contents to see what you've been missing.

Blog posts so far are excerpts from articles. One post on the palm honey of La Gomera begins, "I was sitting in a small bar in La Gomera's capital, San Sebastian, when I began to hear a soft, lilting whistling coming from the streets outside. It was silbo gomero, a whistling language of 4,000 words that peaks and troughs across the island's 378 square kilometers." Don't you want to read on?

Another excerpt, this one from a story by food science explainer Harold McGee traces the history of ricotta made on the Monti Sicani of Sicily. And oh, did I want a bite of that ricotta, still warm, cooked over a wood fire.

Check "stuff we like" for links to sources for good ingredients, including South Carolina's Anson Mills and Southern California's own Sqirl jams.

Most useful: a subject index, so you can find that story on Apulia (Puglia) or wild pecans or Cretan twice-baked bread.

A terrific resource for expanding your food interests beyond the familiar and the local.
